Performance Verification of a Balance
This lab will give you a chance to practice working with an analytical balance. You will weigh four items and then analyze the findings to calculate the linear error for the balance.

Upon completion of this exercise, you will be able to:

  1. Describe the steps required to test a balance
  2. Explain how measurements are used to test equipment performance
  3. Calculate measurements using several key formulas
  4. Determine the accuracy of the scale based on your findings
